    The album is released? 

    I love their sound from Only by the night and forward (yes you read that right). 
    Might be a bit same-y. But they have are really fucking even. And just superbly produced albums. 

    I really dig the last one, even if you could tell their "peak" is over and they have to come to terms with being a great rockband again, and not the "it thing" anymore. 
    You’re gonna love this one. 
    Enjoying it so far!

    Nice! It’s got a great vibe to it. I get a different song stuck in my head everyday so far

    Has anyone bought the new vinyl off of the Yellow Heart site yet?
    I did. For anyone who isn't familiar with the process, it will likely be frustrating.

    @madtowndave it was very frustrating! Finally figured out what to do. YellowHeart could of done a better job of explaining what to do.

    I just looked at yellow heart.  The goldeneye vinyl looks so cool.  How the hell do you buy it?!

    I’ve got the bands website exclusive and my buddy in Nashville just grabbed the signed copy for me.  If they can’t make it easy, I may be fine with what I have thus far.

    Have a song sounded more Kings of Leon than "Supermarket"?

    It seems like bands release so many different limited exclusives. Good for their sales and creating a buzz. I'm trying not to get caught up in it. Fun though if you have the cash and time.

    You have to create an Ethereum wallet, they recommend MetaMask, submit documentation and a selfie to verify your identity, then fund the wallet, then complete your purchase. By the time all was said and done, I think I paid approximately $120 for the NFT. In addition to the cost of the KoL record/download, you also have to pas a Gas Fee for the Ethereum.

    I’m pretty sure it was discussed in their interview with Zane. It’s on Apple Music. My grandmother suffered from dementia and it ultimately took her. I was her caretaker and it’s just such a terrible disease. This verse really hits me 

    Parlor games and six o'clock news
    Hands of a stranger touching you
    Wide awake incased in a dream
    Everything is not as it seems
    All your time is heaven sent
    Days and the nights all start to blend
    It's not like this town to set you free

    I don't understand the Gas Fee, and paying $65 for the record was already pushing it for me. Doubling that cost due to some overhead fee is nuts. I tried, and now own $100 of Ethereum, and will probably keep it that way since the actual use of the currency is too confusing.

    I was on the fence about the NFT version, but the cost and hassle put it over the edge for me. After googling images of the various exclusives, I found the UK exclusive with Amazon on red vinyl and went with that. Shipped to family in the UK free with Amazon, and I’ll pick it up in a year ..if I’m lucky lol. Happy I got that one though.

    I’ve seen cancer close up with my mom and dementia with my grandma. Both awful but to me dementia is the absolute worst. Sorry to hear that Jose. They’re playing Forest Hills in September! One of my favorite venues. Let me know if you decide to go. We can finally say hello
